Listen up as the girls get drunk and stumble around comically for your amusement with bad-ass writer/illustrator/director SARA RUBIN to talk "Burns, Baby, Burns." In this ep, you'll find a deep dive into pure, lovely laziness, the joy that is Rodney Dangerfield's unabashed voice talent, and one of the greatest endings of a Simpsons episode there ever was (according to Julia). Kiss that googley-eyed walnut, clutch that googley-eyed rock and if that stuff ain't good enough for ya, we got some REAL crap!
